New beta, for Android was released.

We fixed SD card access and removed the system cursor.

Thanks for releasing this new beta. I have downloaded it via the Play Store beta program and was able to complete a game with it: Full Throttle, Version B/English. That game crashed on the recent SDL builds, while it ran fine on much older builds. But probably that is not the feedback you were expecting.

So far, ScummVM is running fine and no issues when accessing the file system. Maybe a minor one: When going to the root folder via "Go up" button, nothing is shown in the file chooser and you have to change the scummvm.ini as described elsewhere. So this is a known issue and a tiny one. Everything else seems to work fine.

For the control (mouse) mode, I used only the default direct mode, on the touch screen. Did not try the relative mode.

Device: Nexus 5X, Android 7.1.2 with latest (June) patch level

Update: On Google Pixel (32GB model) with Android 7.1.2, June Patch level, access to the file system seems to be working well, too. I have started a few scumm games and all seemed to be working well.

On Android 7.1.1 Sony Xperia X Compact:
I am testing the beta right now playing DOTT.

File System works good!

i am using the "relative mouse movement (laptop mode)" setting.
Speed at "Medium", acceleration at "Slow".
left-click is set to "Tap"
right-click is set to "hold at the same spot" for 1.0 second.

Basically trying to get the 1.7 Control back.

Bugs i noticed so far:
When trying to move the cursor a few pixel, scumm will perform a right-click, making precise pointing difficult. The cusor also tends to stutter when moved slowly.

i believe the problem is that the "hold at the same spot" function for the right click, has a high tolerance for what is considered the same spot and ingores slow movment, also when the cursor is moved slowly it will still check every second if "hold at the same spot in x sceond" is true.
